We had dinner here, and they have outside seating which looks really awesome on a nice evening. They didn't have available tables, so we ate inside, but it was still really nice, and the food was really delicious and very "low country" style. Had great Hush Puppies with our meal, and our waitress was a wonderfully friendly girl from S.Africa. We loved chatting with her and overall, had a great, relaxing meal. I'd recommend this restaurant.

We had a fun meal here. They started us off with a basket of hush puppies, which I'd never had but found pleasant. We had fried green tomatoes as an appetizer, which I'd never had but enjoyed a lot.

For dinner I had a pile of snow and king crab, which you can't go wrong with. My wife had the charleston snapper, which was fine but nothing to get excited about.

We finished with a slice of Reese's peanut butter pie which was awesome.

Myself and 16 friends spent the day in Charleston. We had dinner at the Charleston Crab House. The fried green tomatoes weren't the best I've had but overall the food is pretty good. For such a large group we had pretty awesome service.

The atmosphere was very laid back and great location. Wonderful service. Awesome crabs, but kids food terrible. Don't order the pizza!

After a nice day touring the city for the first time we came across the crab house. We sat upstairs on the patio. The She Crab soup was excellent. We also had deviled crab, shrimp and scallops which were deep fried very nicely, not too greasy. Nice beer selection and great service!
